How can you not appreciate this view and this house? Steve is the point man and helps in so many ways. He went above and beyond just like last time so we felt like family. We can't wait to set up something for summertime.

Perfect Summer Getaway - Great Amenities, Fun, and Clean

  • 5 of 5

Haven on the Lake was perfect! The host is organized and so nice. You can tell she really cares about her property and the experience her guests have. For 6 adults and one pup the house was spacious, VERY clean, not a spec of dust to be found. As an added bonus there is a small market across the street for last min drinks, snacks etc...This came in handy a few times. :)

We came up to Lucern for a wedding at Precious Forest. We consisted of the brides siblings and significant others. This house is a couple minutes away from the entrance to the forest. The short commute made it easy to help out with the wedding setup. The wedding took place at the end of July at the peak of the summer heat so we were very happy to have an air conditioned, dust free house to come home to.

The kitchen is stocked! We baked treats for the wedding and hosted a BBQ. On the big day the bride came down to the house to beat the heat, relax and get ready. The setting was picturesque and we got some great "getting ready shots".

This was a very special weekend and staying at Haven on the Lake made it just perfect.

My only regret is that there was not enough time for us to enjoy the amenities provided. The kayaks and bikes looked brand new and so tempting. Hopefully next time we will be able break out the tackle box and kayaks.

Owner's Response: So glad Skye you all, including your pup, enjoyed our home and the wedding was beautiful. I can see it can be a great back drop for the bride photos. Hopefully you can visit us again when you have more time for the kayaking and fishing experiences:-)

A corner of paradise on Clearlake

  • 5 of 5

Second visit back to Haven on the lake. Pam and Michael have made so many subtle yet wonderful additions to the house - it really was so lovely to return and enjoy a few days of kickback and relax. The water was up so we could dock our boat and come and go as we pleased. BONUS!

Fishing is SUPERB here. My daughter literally dropped her bait in the water and a bass grabbed in straight away, and while sitting on the dock as well... :) We met Tom, a local 'professional Santa Claus' who was an amazing fisherman. Our kids loved him as he showed them some technique and they started bringing in the fish :)

Steve, Pam's man on the ground is a lovely guy, and was really helpful in letting us know where we could go by boat for a few wets, good food and live music - Top man, and knows the area well.

We will definitely be back - ohhh yes :-)

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic, relaxing time at Haven on the Lake. The house is beautifully decorated, yet very welcoming and comfortable. You absolutely feel your vacation begin as soon as you walk through the gate and set your sights on the lake. The yard/views are fantastic. The house was clean and the pictures don't do it justice. We stayed with our two teens and very happy dog. It was a hit with everyone. Fishing was beyond expected. Our 15 year son finally caught his very first fish here - and it was a good size - within 10 minutes of casting off the dock (though he's tried many times at other local or vacation spots). Everything on the property is well thought out and we were in need of nothing. Beds were super comfortable. Enjoyed bluetooth speaker on deck in evenings. Coffee in the morning watching the birds flying and fish jumping. Saw an osprey fly over with a fish in his claws. Thanks for a memorable vacation!!

Relaxing Long Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The property was amazing. There isn't a single detail that the owners haven't thought of. From the chest of dog toys in the family room, to the bluetooth speakers on the patio, down to the rod holders built into the dock and benches on the sea wall. All you need to bring is food and clothes. There's a market across the street just in case you forgot something, which we really appreciated.

We spent the majority of our stay on the back deck and dock, fishing, playing in the water and taking in the panoramic view. We managed to catch a number of smaller bass and bluegill along with a 4lb largemouth and a 10+ pound catfish all from the dock/sea wall.

This place is perfect for just about anyone looking to enjoy some relaxing time on water. Also, a big thank you to Steve the property manager for always making himself available to address any issues/questions that we had before and during our stay.

Look forward to returning!

Amazing family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This really is "Haven on the Lake." Fishing, kayaking, swimming, enjoying the sunsets, feeding the ducks, the fire pit, all made this a memorable vacation for our family. The house itself is very clean and I mean VERY CLEAN and decorated perfectly. You can tell that the owners really care for this home by the attention to detail. It had all the amenities that we needed. It's location directly across the street from the Market which made it easy for last minute snacks we craved. To be able to fish directly off the dock is priceless. We lost count on the amount of Blue Gill we caught, but we will be back to try and catch a Black Bass. We can't thank Michael and Pam enough for sharing their home. Can't wait to enjoy it again next Summer. It can't come soon enough.

Better than we ever could have imagined!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home. It was a vacation we so desperately needed and your home met and exceeded all of our expectations!!! We spent the last evening sitting on the benches watching the sunset and talking and sharing because the atmosphere created the best opportunity for relaxing and resting and made the perfect evening. It was our 30th anniversary and it could not have been spent better. The bed was too die for and we are currently looking for a distributor in our area so we can have the same mattress in our home. All we have to do now is find a lake we can buy and put in our backyard to re-create our vacation at Clear Lake. Steve was wonderful and made sure we knew how to work all things at the house and told us we could contact him if we needed anything and that made us feel very at ease should something arise. We loved the music you had programmed and wondered what type of music station it was? It was truly wonderful and we will be back, ASAP!!!!!!!

Owner's Response: We are so delighted that you both enjoyed your stay at our little Haven on the Lake. It is Michael and my Happy Place to get away from everything. The music we have programmed in is a few of the Pandora stations which we picked to give a wide variety of music for our guest to pick from. Happy Anniversary and we look forward to your return visit with us:-)

  • A wonderful area next door, a park like area where your kayaks and dogs can easily go in and out of the water. We keep the bottom of our dock at least 2 1/2 feet above the water level due to the possibility of an afternoon breeze that can cause waves.
